Ben is once more back on board the Bonaventure, and the ship is making its way back to base. Very slowly. The bosses of Min-XR are not so sure they want a powerful alien loose in their city, and it is not long before they are plotting to keep him away from Camp Munro while they decide what exactly to do with him. Ben is still enjoying his life amongst the humans, and has now taken up the new hobbies of surgery, dissecting watches (not necessarily with the owner’s permission) and practising shrugging and modest looks.
This is the second series of very short ‘snippet’ stories about Ben and his life on the Bonaventure.
